May 25th 2010 1:30PM Vegetable doesn't even mean anything scientifically, so I'm not sure what she meant by that either. (That is, it's not like fruit where there's a specific scientific definition on top of the common general public definition. Vegetable doesn't mean anything different to botanists or biologists.)
May 19th 2010 5:15PM Just a small correction; Test of Strength isn't a Shaman quest. It's part of the whole Test of Lore quest chain that starts in Thousand Needles.
May 17th 2010 10:28PM Depends on what court you'd take the case to, really. The 7th and 8th Circuit have mostly upheld the concept of software being licensed rather than sold for software with an EULA, while other circuits have said that isn't valid. And it's never been taken to the Supreme Court level, so that's as far as can be said.
Apr 24th 2010 7:10PM The word wasn't even misused, though. Redundant, maybe (although I'd even disagree with that), but not incorrect. Their everyday way of life was, yes, literally changed as opposed to figuratively or metaphorically changed.
Your complaint is about when literally is used for something that _isn't_ literal. In this case, it _is_ literal.
Apr 12th 2010 9:54AM @Scard: No federal income taxes. There's still sales tax, payroll tax, social security, and the like.
Mar 31st 2010 2:17PM @kharrah02: Lightning and thunder are simultaneous in real life. Thunder is the sound of lightning ionizing the air. Lightning just looks like it comes first because light is faster than sound.
Mar 13th 2010 5:55PM You still can. It goes green at 50 and grey at 75.
Feb 22nd 2010 10:48PM Blizzard didn't develop LUA, they only implemented it. LUA was developed in 1993 by a bunch of CS students in Brazil as a general scripting language for all sorts of applications, like TCL. A bunch of games use/d it: Baldur's Gate, Grim Fandango, HoMM 5, S.T.A.L.K.E.R., and Homeworld 2 among others.
Jan 31st 2010 2:06AM You really think that scammers and phishers are just random guys sending out messages from single accounts? 99 times out of 100 the email accounts these sorts of messages come from are also compromised, a zombie on some botnet being exploited by scammers to send messages quickly and without effort. Your harassment, although it might help you vent some frustration, is almost always completely pointless in terms of actually getting them to stop, or even in terms of keeping them from being able to do their work. The scammer almost definitely won't even see your emails sent back since they don't bother checking the accounts, they just use them to send stuff out.
